The Linz Family ~ Cincinnati, Ohio


Team of Four Siblings: Tommy, 19, Megan, 21, Nick, 24
and Alex, 22.


The Linz Family is from Cincinnati, Ohio. This close-knit team is comprised of three brothers and one feisty sister who are so deeply rooted in Cincinnati that they have over 50 first cousins living in or near the Cincinnati area. The Linz's parents have been married for more than 28 years.

Nick is the oldest on the team at 24 and works in sales in Buffalo, New York. He describes himself as hardworking and friendly.

Alex, 22, recently graduated from the University of Cincinnati and works as an emergency room technician. He says he is optimistic and proud.

Tommy, 19, is currently enrolled at Miami University of Ohio. Tommy, who played on the Miami University lacrosse team, is willing and outgoing.

Megan, 21, is the only female on the team. She also attends Miami University of Ohio and is studying Strategic Communications. Megan enjoys cheerleading and field hockey. Although she's outnumbered by the boys, she and her brothers are very close.

The Linz siblings are well-traveled, athletic, very competitive and ready to embark on a race around the world on "The Amazing Race."

Go Linz family! I work at and am a graduate of Miami University, and we've had a lot of representation on reality shows lately. Last year Susan (from the team of Susan and Patrick) on TAR7 was a fellow MU employee. Drew Daniel, winner of BB5 is a MU alumnus (and was always wearing Miami stuff and even had a MU flag in his HOH room), Todd Metzger from American Idol's second season is also an alum.

We live in Cincinnati, Ohio too. So, we are supporting the Linz family. BUT...I wasn't very impressed tonight. The sister and one of the brothers sat in that buggy waaaay to long. They should have switched with them when the other two were obviously tired. It looked really hard to pull and they had a serious lack of teamwork for most (not all) of the buggy ride. I hope they get it together for the rest of the race! dry.gif

i think they are going to win, b/c they are around the same age and around the same physically and mentally. also one of the brothers is fricking hilarious (the one wearing the orange headband)

On CBS it asks who will come in first for the next lag and I chose them. Sometimes the team that comes in next to last the first show usually comes in first the next show lol

ROFL... I loved that moment!
Reminds me so much of how me and my brother act.
I hope they do better than they did... I love the goofy people in reality shows.
*cry* I miss the brothers from last season.

If they play smarter I would expect to see this family in the Final 3.

LOL I love how they were the only team to look at the map and take back roads to avoid the traffic jam. They made up alot of time with that move. And for siblings they don't argue much, which is a good thing. I love the ones comment about a pee jar, and the sisters disgusted look. hehehehe

I was glad to see them move up where this team belongs. If they don't stay in the top 3 for the remainder of the race I will be shocked.
